Shiny Holiday Object Drawings in Oil Pastel


For our final project before the Christmas break, my Grade 7-9 students chose any shiny holiday themed object to draw. The focus as to get a nice sharp highlight to showcase the object's shiny or reflective surface. Candy canes were obviously popular, but some students tried something a bit more challenging. 

They started off by drawing their object on lilac construction paper.

Then they used a white oil pastel to draw a thick line of highlight 
down the center of the object.

Then they coloured in the rest, using two similar values: one light and one darker, on the edges.

Finally, they cut it out and glued it onto black paper.

A lot of kids didn't manage to finish in time unfortunately but here are some that did!
